    2/3rds of the way there! Sounds great so far.

    One pup is black start and white end. The other is green start red end. Connecting the red and white gives you a series humbucker.

    Nice, Cappie. u had me @ the first pinch harmonic. ;) I think the problem with the quiet coil is that you don't have too much reverb. Rob always has too much reverb, and he doesn't seem to have that problem. Very nice sounding guitar, looks fun to play.

    I haven't been able to dig up an alternate wiring diagram for a dpdt on on on switch to get a good 3 tone split on a humbucker.
    The unique construction of Robs pickup is why I want this wired like this.. One coil on/both coils on/other coil on.
    Any education would be met with bear hugs

    This would be a good one but not what I want right now.

    So... Here's one way... This diagram shows the switching action of an On-On-On toggle switch (which can be confusing!):

    Humbucker On-On-ON Switching.png

    This will give you either coil separately, or both coils in parallel... but not both coils in series.

    Note the jumper wire between the two middle terminals on the switch!

    We need the coils in series as well Jim. Something like a Tele 4 way switch is needed here.

    Can you tilt that HB so the black coil is a bit closer to the strings?

    Dam that thing rocks!

    Wiring always does my head in, but I would think that you COULD wire that unicorn switch up to do what you want; it's OVER-qualified...
